Ingredients for Egg White Bites

To ensure these homemade egg white bites closely match the Starbucks version, we’ve used ingredients similar to theirs. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Liquid Egg Whites – The key ingredient for egg white bites.
  • Cottage Cheese – Boosts protein content and creates a creamy texture.
  • Monterey Jack Cheese – Adds healthy fats and more protein. Other shredded cheeses like cheddar or mozzarella work too.
  • Feta Cheese – Provides a salty kick.

  • Fresh Spinach – Adds leafy greens.
  • Green Onions – Adds flavor.
  • Hot Sauce – For a touch of spice (optional).
  • Butter – Adds healthy fats and creates a smooth texture.
  • Cornstarch – Binds proteins and absorbs excess liquid, recreating the Starbucks egg white bite’s jiggly texture.

How to Make Egg White Bites

While Starbucks egg white bites are made using the sous vide method, you can recreate them at home using a blender, muffin pan, and baking sheet. Here’s the process:

  • Blend the egg whites and cheese: In a blender, combine egg whites, cottage cheese, shredded Monterey jack cheese, feta, butter, cornstarch, and hot sauce. Blend until smooth.
  • Add the veggies: Place chopped roasted red bell pepper, spinach, green onions, and a pinch of salt and pepper in each cup of a muffin pan.
  • Pour into a muffin pan: Divide the egg mixture evenly among the muffin cups, filling them two-thirds full.
  • Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet: Position the muffin pan on top of a baking sheet and fill the sheet with boiling water.
  • Bake: Bake at 350°F for 20-22 minutes.
  • Cool and enjoy: Once baked, let the egg white bites cool slightly before serving.

  • 2 cups liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or arrowroot powder or tapioca starch)
  • 1 dash of hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup finely diced roasted red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • Salt and black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and bring a kettle to a boil. If using a metal muffin pan, coat it with cooking spray or lightly grease the muffin cups with oil. If using a silicone muffin pan (recommended) or silicone molds, do not grease the muffin cups.
  • In a food processor or blender, add the egg whites, cottage cheese, shredded Monterey jack, feta, melted butter, cornstarch, and hot sauce. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth. Set aside.
  • Add the chopped spinach, roasted red pepper, onion, and a pinch of salt and pepper into the bottom of each cup of the muffin pan, dividing it evenly among all 12 cups.
  • Pour the egg whites mixture into the muffin pan, dividing it evenly among all 12 cups. Give each cup a quick whisk with a fork.
  • Place the muffin pan on top of a baking sheet and transfer the sheet to the preheated oven with the muffin pan on top.
  • Once in the oven, pour boiling water onto the baking sheet (find an exposed corner with enough room to add water) until it reaches 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up the edges of the baking sheet. (While you can bake the muffin pan directly in the oven without the baking sheet and water, using them helps poach and steam the egg white bites, giving them a sous-vide texture.)
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes or until set.
  • After cooking, remove the baking sheet and muffin pan from the oven. Transfer the muffin pan to a wire cooling rack for about 10 minutes or until the egg white bites are cool enough to handle.
  • Once cooled, remove the egg white bites from the muffin cups and serve immediately or store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.


Liquid Egg Whites: You can typically find carton egg whites in the egg section of most major grocery stores.
